Newhailes’ Green Learning Festival returns for another year, with new workshops to choose from.

 Green Scene is a two-day event for primary schools. It is taking place on the 11th September for P2 to P4 classes and 12th September for P5 to P7 classes.

During their visit school groups attend three workshops. Each one lasts an hour and is provided by different heritage and environment organisations. Classes are usually divided into 2 groups of no more than 17 children so the students can get as much out of the day as possible.

 Schools can sign up for either one or both of these days.

Due to its popularity in previous years we some new organisations will be taking part: Changeworks, RCAHMS and Buglife. Some providers will be joining us again including Historic Scotland, Scottish Seabird Centre, and Hopetoun House Ranger Service.

This is a great opportunity for your students to have fun while learning about history and their environment, in the setting of Newhailes’ historic landscape. It is usually great fun too!

The day starts at 10.15am and ends at 2.30pm.

If you are interested please fill out the School Booking form Green Scene 2012 as soon as possible as spaces are limited due to the high demand. This year the deadline is Friday 22nd June. We will send you confirmation of your booking and further details.

Thank you
